Sight and Sound - 08/01/2002
"...ABRAHAM LINCOLN provides a fascinating insight into how Griffith imagined adapting his silent techniques to sound..."

Product Description:

Silent film master D.W. Griffith's first talkie works as a companion piece to his classic BIRTH OF A NATION, providing a detailed biographical sketch of the 16th president. We see his birth in a log cabin, the tragic death of his first love, Ann Rutledge (Una Merkel), his debates with Douglas, his accepting of the presidency, the terrible toll of the Civil War, and finally the tragic assassination at Ford's Theater. Griffith shows his usual meticulous attention to period detail, and the framing of the various vignettes has the feel of historical photographs come to life. Walter Huston is excellent in the title role, with a portrayal that subtly evolves from laconic, wizened rascal to noble elder statesman. This is a fascinating, worthy film, and an interesting historical document in and of itself.

Plot Synopsis:

Significant for many reasons, not the least of which is that this is Griffith's first talkie as a director. Tracing the life of the president from his humble birth to his career in politics, Griffith's portrait is factual and sincere--with a stand-out performance by Walter Huston (father of John and grandfather of Angelica) as Lincoln.
